Smooth and creamy, this drink is very similar to the one served at the mall.

- 8 ice cubes
- -Combine all ingredients, except ice cubes, in blender.
- -Blend 1-2 minutes , adding ice cubes one at a time, until smooth.
Very good and creamy. I have made this with powdered sugar which makes it even more like the mall version. Love it, and drank it all the time when I was pregnant too. Easy to make if you don't mind getting the blender out.
This is a great recipe and it really does taste like an Orange Julius drink. It makes a big batch and is fun to make.
Ok, I made this and left it on my counter for 10 minutes, and when I came back I found that the smoothie had separated into 2 parts. The top half was the milk, which had curdled (because of the citric acid in the orange concentrate) and had formed a sort of orange-flavoured "buttermilk", and the lower part was the orange "juice", the watery part. I really couldn't bring myself to drink it! Even before making this I thought it was odd that a smoothie recipe contain a citrus fruit, because the acid would almost always make the milk curdle! It's chemistry!
